CCJ Presidents to visit homeless centre Providence Row
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks and other Presidents of the Council of Christians and Jews will visit Providence Row at the Dellow Centre in London.
Providence Row helps homeless people get off and stay off the streets by building skills and confidence. The organisation sees the journey from being homeless to finding a place in the community as a pathway with key ‘stepping stones’ along the way. It provides a range of services to help people take the steps they need, including trainee schemes, language classes, workshops to improve employability, and support for mental health and addiction issues.
The Council of Christians and Jews was founded in 1942 by Chief Rabbi Joseph H. Hertz and Archbishop William Temple. It works with Christians, Jews and members of other faith communities to counter anti-semitism and other forms of intolerance in Britain.
